I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

I'm Back

So I think it was last week Thursday when I left the house and locked the door and then looked down.

Only to realize . . . I wasn't wearing any shoes.

And, yep. I think that's when it struck me that maybe I was a little overextended. Perhaps. Just a possibility.

And then on Friday when I started to get a bit light-headed during a job (fortunately toward the end - another reminder that I should always carry a snack with me while I'm shooting), that was another sign that I might want to slow down.

So yeah, I know the blog has been suffering. And I don't like to miss more than a day here and there, but life's been a bit crazy and I cut out what I could, and that happened to be the blog.

But now it's June! A new month, a new beginning, and hopefully I'll learn to manage my time better, and not overcommit myself as I always do. ("Oh, of course, I'd love to do that! No problem! I think I have a few hours in the middle of Saturday where I don't have any plans.")

And one of the saddest things about May, I think, was that I took almost no personal photos. So it's felt amazing these past few days to put the 85mm on the camera, go for a short walk, and just snap a few shots. Play with light and color and shape and not worry about whether the shot turns out or not. Because hey! It's just for me, right?

*So what have you been doing recently that makes you smile? I'd love to hear all about it.*
